Lyrics

I’m out on my own again
Face down in the porcelain
Feeling so high but looking so low
Party favors on the floor
Group of girls banging on the door
So many new fair-weather friends...

(Chorus)
Have you ever been so lost
Known the way and still so lost

Caught in the eye of a hurricane
Slowly waving goodbye like a pageant parade
So sick of this town pulling me down
My mother says I should come back home but
Can’t find the way cause the way is gone
So if I pray, am I just sending words into
outer space?

(Chorus)
Have you ever been so lost
Known the way and still so lost
Another night waiting for someone
to take me home
Have you ever been so lost

Is there a light
Is there a light
At the end of the road
I’m pushing everyone away
‘Cause I can’t feel this anymore
Can’t feel this anymore

(Chorus)
Have you ever been so lost
Known the way and still so lost
Another night waiting for someone
to take me home
Have you ever been so lost
Have you ever been so lost
